Simply turn a dial and start up the Pit Boss 820 Deluxe Pellet Grill. You’ll be able to bake a pizza, smoke up ribs or sear a steak with the delicious flavor infused by all-natural hardwood pellets. With a wide range of cooking temperatures at your fingertips (180°F to 500°F), you can utilize the digital control board to precisely cook up whatever’ ...
They are unique in that they can function as a comprehensive smoking machine, as well as a convenient grill. They feature an offset chamber which you can load with your charcoal/wood, and a separate chamber for your food. This set-up means you can easily use them and top up your fuel without disturbing the smoke levels with the food. Even cooking is achieved by a small miracle called reverse flow technology. This really just means there’s a small perforated plate sliding between the food and smoke chamber at the perfect frequency to completely equalize the temperature.
Packaging was good inside and out. All parts were secured to prevent damage and we liked the colorful graphics on the hopper and under the hood that explained how a pellet smoker works for a first time user. When the 820 was almost fully assembled, we noticed an unused bag of washers that were not mentioned in the assembly instructions except in the parts list. After being on hold with customer service for ten minutes, we were advised to unscrew everything and refasten all parts adding the washers to the screw and lock nut assemblies.

Jump into summer with the Pit Boss Deluxe Wood Pellet Grill. Pit Boss brings the fun back to grilling with this heavy-duty grill with temperature range capabilities from 170–500 degrees Fahrenheit. With two levels of cooking racks, you can grill more at the same time and keep your foods in direct or indirect heat. An auto-ignition will have you up and grilling within seconds, and when you're done grilling, you can rely on the auto shutoff to wrap things up.

Although these are marketed as grills, they do much more, including baking or roasting. Because they heat by convection, you might not get the grill marks that a gas or charcoal grill will give you, but you also won’t have the flame-up problems. While many pellet grills offer high cooking temperatures, the maximum depends on ambient temperature and wind. Many users wrap their grills in special insulating covers to help maintain heat, reduce fuel use, and reach the higher temperatures they desire.

I got this for father's day 2017, I've put 120 lbs of pellets through mine. Overall it is great, good price for the money, sear plate is nice for grilling. After a long Texas summer with a lot of use, it now struggles to hold at 225. It will either run at 205 or 235. It used to hold like a champ. I started using a Therm Pro TP08 Dual Probe to confirm and it's showing the same thing. I've tried playing with the P settings but nothing works. My only other complaint is that the paint burned off of the outside underneath. Called customer service, left a couple voicemails, and never got a call back.
I just love this smoker/grill! I use it at least twice a week. I’ve made great pizza’s (on my Pit Boss Pizza Stone) The first one I ordered was delivered, and was broken. I called Pit Boss, and they replaced it right away, without any hassle! That’s good customer service! I love the fact that they carry so many natural flavored wood pellets. I use the apple wood pellets for ribs, the Hickory for steaks and chicken, and the competition blend for grilling burgers, salmon, etc. My friends are always impressed by the quality, I mean, this thing is a flavor machine! I’ve read a few negative reviews, but I have not had any problem with this machine. All you have to do is keep it clean, and it performs like a champ! I am very satisfied with this product, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting a new grill or smoker. Sincerely, Happy Pallet in Venice, Florida!
This pellet smoker grill met 14 out of our 32 criteria when we used our checklist. Although 14 isn’t an exceptionally high score, the features that it did meet were the ones that were tied the most to customer satisfaction, encouraging us to look into the grill a little further. When the Grills Forever team did, we weren’t left disappointed! The smoker grill has one of the largest cooking grid sizes available today! The body of the grill itself is of high quality and is completely insulated, making it very efficient. The wide temperature range reaches a considerable height. However, the grill is remarkably durable and well prepared so you can rest assured of your safety. The porcelain-coated grates are also very easy to clean and conduct heat very well; lying underneath are the high-quality burners which are controlled through an automated system, meaning you can kick back and relax.
Was originally looking for a gas grill, this grill had everything I was looking for and more. Larger cooking space, no flare ups, ability to smoke. I have zero fluctuations in temp, but there is a significant temp difference between controller temp and lid thermometer. I have learned how to deal with this. Also, it comes with 2 temp probes that I use always that help, plus I just learned on Youtube that if you adjust the "P" settings you can fix this issue. Other small things that I like about this grill is Made In America, Instructions only in English, and they were specific to this model (not cut n paste saying "if applicable"). 40lb bag of pellet compared to propane tank consumption is close, but you will spend a little more for a bag of pellets and maybe have to buy slightly more often than a tank refill....but I have been grilling a lot more also. I also compared to other brands as well. Probably the worst thing about this grill is Walmart cant keep them in stock
This presumably has the most exact temperature perusing of any grill right now available. Accompanying a cookbook, a simple get together, and a decent outline, the PG24 is definitely justified even despite the cash. I enjoyed the decision of a wood screw framework rather than a suction framework, since it spares cash on pellets, and manages temperature better. For those needing to get into pellet grilling, this would be an astounding decision.
Strangely, whenever you switch cooking temp, the auger runs continuously for four minutes before trying to adjust to the new set temp. This isn't so bad if you're going from low to high, but problematic in the opposite direction. We were slow smoking ribs when interrupted just as they passed the bend test and were ready to be sauced. Forgetting the controllers odd four minute drill, we turned the temp down from 225° to the lowest "Smoke" setting to hold them briefly. Luckily we returned within a few minutes to rescue the ribs. The continuous pellet feed had goosed temps to 400°! A serious flaw that should be corrected.
I'm really loving this grill! So far I've cooked a tri tip. Brisket. Ribs and a pork butt. All on one 20lb bag of pellets. It's almost a set it and forget it kind if thing. I just pop out and look and the temp once and a while with the built in probe I don't have to open the lid and let out the smoke and heat. It steps up your bbq game to a different level for sure. This is very well made.
Gas grills are the best friend of the busy (or easily confused) person. With just the turn of a knob, the grill flames alight ready to use. There’s no added fuel cost and no worries with disposal of ash. With just a quick wipe post use it’s all ready for another sunny day. They also preheat very quickly, within 10 minutes you’ll be ready to start laying out your meat medley for grilling.

While marinades and seasonings help meats and veggies taste delicious, wood smoking chips and pellets can add rich flavor to your dishes, too. Many are designed to add robust maple and hickory flavors to meats as well as hints of fruit, like apple and peach, that are perfect for poultry. You can even stock the hopper with a mix of your favorite flavors to create a signature dish that's sure to impress even the pickiest of eaters.
Pellet grills are outdoor cookers in every sense of the word. In saying that, I mean that they can bake, smoke and grill all through the magic of wood pellets and an electronic control panel that deposits just the right amount of pellet to maintain the perfect cooking temperature. With the simple turn of a knob, you can conjure up the gorgeous complex flavor of wood smoked meat without having to deal with the hassle of manual smoking.
So if I am going to take a pass on the Pit Boss then why not get a Traeger?  A lot of folks are introduced to this brand through the infomercials for the Traeger Renegade Elite.  And while the Elite and other models like the Tailgater are fine cookers I am not going to recommend a Traeger for the exact same reason that you are thinking about a Pit Boss.
Portable grills are very popular these days. That’s why when we say that this grill has a rating of 4.2*, it means a lot. In fact, it means that this Pit Boss grill has a higher rating than all other portable grills currently on the market. Remember, these ratings are based on a culmination of reviews from a variety of different websites, 4.2* is very high!

Pit Boss is a company worth trusting. They’re a large corporation built around quality, efficiency and meeting customer needs. They even allow you to register any product with their brand on their website, for full warranty and online manual access. So, even if you’ve decided on buying one of their grills elsewhere, you can rest assured they’ve got you covered. Although Pit Boss grills often come only partially assembled, you really only need a screwdriver and a tiny bit of time to fit the pieces together quickly and easily. For the wood pellet grills, Pit Boss stock their own range of flavored, all American wood pellets that you can buy not only from their website, but all across the web (they’re notoriously brilliant!)
Pit Boss Wood Pellet Grills are filled by all regular BBQ wood pellets. The computerized control board lights the grill and permits you to set the cooking temperature from 180° to 500°F. Fan constrained convection cooking takes out the requirement for a rotisserie and makes an adaptable situation for grilling, simmering, smoking, braising and preparing. The Pit Boss 340 has 340 sq. in. total cooking surface with porcelain covered cooking grids. With complete structural quality and strength, the Pit Boss 340 is made to last.

Transportable, but not only that. This grill is light, well designed and affordable all while having a huge amount of space for cooking up outdoors. The independently controlled burners mean that you can regulate temperature to fit your exact requirements. One small downfall being a lack of temperature measurements on the dials but this is by no means takes away from all of its positives.

First of all, Pit Boss uses more sophisticated technology and offers a wide range of choices. It comes with features such as automatic startup and cools down systems, which will make grilling easier and make it possible even for the beginners. Then we have a digital control system, which uses LED display. It is similar to the Traeger models, but not entirely. What’s a new feature is the smoke area which will keep the smoke inside, therefore eliminates the heat loss.
These grills are the convenient, clean and easy way to grill meat quickly. If you’re limited on space and budget electric grills are the perfect provider for your needs. The one downfall is that you don’t get the same flavor as you would with wood chips or charcoal; the benefits for some outweigh this negative, in that the meat itself still tastes great and it’s all in all, just so much easier.
After only two weeks the auger jammed and quit turning. I stored the grill under a cover and had it under the eaves of my house. When I contacted Pit Boss customer service they said, "Even with a cover and being under the eaves, the pellets will still pull moisture out of the air. When those pellets get wet they can swell, and prevent the auger from turning." They included two pdf documents on how to disassemble the grill to include disconnecting wiring and circuit boards. If every time it rains, I'm going to clean out the auger, no thank you. No where in the instruction booklet does it say anything about not storing pellets in the hopper or it will clog the auger and will you have to spend the next week disassembling your grill.
Among all of Pit Boss’ gas grills, this unit has an impressive review frequency – meaning a lot of those who bought it were definitely satisfied with this grill. It has four racks – all porcelain-coated, making it very spacious and easy to clean, a separate chamber for wood chips so you can easily refuel without disrupting the smoking procedure, and a viewing window on the door to let you see just how well the cooking is proceeding without opening the cooking chamber. This grill uses dual burners for uniform cooking, and has a temperature range of 100 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Best of all, this grill is unbelievably priced at under $200 – which definitely makes it quite a steal!

Pit Boss Wood Pellet Grills are fueled by all-natural wood pellets. Deluxe features include a two-tone black and copper finish, combination side shelf and serving tray, solid bottom shelf as well as a bottle opener. The PB440 Deluxe digital control board ignites the grill and allows you to set the cooking temperature from 180° to 500°F, while fan ...
Bought the smoker about 6 months ago - haven't started the gas grill since! I still have a propane smoker at the campground - going to try and sell that because we love the pit boss that much. We've smoked ribs, pork loin, prime rib, steaks, pizza and one of my favorites was smoked cheese. By turning up the"p"setting we were able to keep the temp down to around 80-95 degrees. We've smoked food in 90 temps all the way to 20 below zero it's no joke. Absolutely love the pit boss!
